We were a group visiting to see the Arts and Crafts room and soon found there was lots more to see. This museum is constantly changing with new exhibitions and displays and we never tire of visiting it.

We loved the dinosaurs and fossils. The animal section was really interesting and the Egyptian mummy’s. Sadly the whole museum needed a good clean the dust is thick on a lot of the exhibits which spoils it.
